Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

Lap top keeps shutting down

\015 It seems it may be over heating. I can hear the fan constantly going. It is happen more and more frequent. The whole things just turns off. I can not reboot immediatly but insteaed I have to wait a little while adn then re start it. Could this be a virus or a broken fan? I just got this a year and a half ago!\015

Answers :

This is a heat problem. Get a can of compressed air and blow it into all the holes in the side of the computer and bottom (if there are holes there). Most likely there is dust build-up inside.
This should help.
